Dawn Banning AFC

Photo of Dawn Banning AFCDawn comes by her passion for nature quite honestly. Her mother, a nurse and avid gardener, has always loved to be outdoors. With her father employed as a Park Conservation Officer, Dawn quickly came to love all the things in nature that she encountered daily in Saskatchewan’s Provincial Parks.

She has been deeply influenced by the vast diversity of Canadian regions in which she has resided, from the big sky of Saskatchewan, to the vibrancy of the Yukon, the lush forests of B.C, to the colorful parks of Ontario.

Dawn paints rich colourful original oil Impressionist landscape painting, with an impasto/ plein air feel.
“Dawn’s canvas’s evoke a world alive with motion, resonating with life that reaches up out of the soil to the sunlight. Her images invite us to celebrate this world, to imagine that which lies on it’s outer edges, and to participate in a world moving in light” Darin Larson

As a strong supporter of charities, Dawn donates work each year in support of various fund-raising activities.

Dawn was selected to be a Signature member of the prestigious AFC Foundation (Artists for Conservation) in 2009.
